At the 1962 meeting of the Pacific Coast Oto-Ophthalmological Society, the ophthalmologic program covered many subjects of timely interest. Dayton and Straatsma reported favorable results in the treatment by photocoagulation of eight patients with Eales' disease. These authors state that at any one treatment the extent and degree of photocoagulation should be carefully controlled. Haas' case discussions point out the unsolved problems related to low tension glaucoma and to the effect of elevated intraocular pressure upon outflow and trabecular structure. Laughlin's studies indicate that the insertion of the internal rectus muscle may be from 3-6 mm from the limbus, the average distance being 4.5 mm. This investigator finds that ideally the internus should be recessed 9-10 mm from the limbus.
